Over the past couple of weeks I've been sneaking in small moments to appreciate the beautiful Autumn colors before they are all gone, which has included snapping a bunch of photos of the changing leaves.

Hey there, tea drinkers! Have you ever lost track of teas in the back of the cabinet, or forgotten about that sample pack buried beneath the pile of more recent additions to your stash? If so, then you may want to start keeping a digital catalog of the teas in your stash. In this post I show you how you can easily set up a pretty rad digital tea catalog using the Kanban board app Trello. I've provided a Trello template board to really help make it easy to get going quickly.

Well, I'm here to let you know that your green teas don't have to be overly bitter or astringent, and that in fact, there are some simple changes you can make when brewing your green tea that can radically improve its flavor and texture.
Hey there, tea drinkers! I decided to start experimenting with cold brewing some loose-leaf teas. I pulled the first of these experiments out of the fridge this morning and transferred the brew from my cold brew press to a glass bottle: an Uji Gyokuro tea.
